8:02pm
any challenges. and a definitive example is a $16 billion cut to medicare the keeps talking about. everybody that has followed this recently it is not really a cut to medicare. >> it is not the of a full- service cut. >> it is in the ryan budget plan. he was serving cut up three-four times in the serveto not and the president -- did not even take the bait or swing at it. if you are a from a supporter you are cheering but if you are undecided. i still do not know. you are going to hear a lot about romney perhaps victory over the debate but the style, on aggression. and weather it was refuted. but for undecided was there enough specifics? facts?

8:04pm
screaming at your television. mitt romney is banking that going with him is going better than the other guy. it is compassionate conservatism. george w. bush. all types of things and it is calculated to get to the heart of the undecided voter. it is just very odd. mitt romney was playing a game of tennis and obama was playing ping-pong. , it was an interesting dynamic. thank you for your analysis. if you'd like to connect with michael you can follow him on a twitter. and his handle at yaqui. and vicki? >> there were highlights, the lights and after all. we look for things that were not that many but head-to- head who ended up? the president saying that it was
8:05pm
presidential and challenger mitt romney. more than held his own. >> does anybody out there think that the big problem we have of is that there was too much oversight and regulation. of wall street. if you do? and governor romney is your candidate. >> that is why i would have regulation but i do not think that big would give -- big banks would give them an blank check. however, not because of energy consumption up despite of his policies. mr. president, all of the increase in oil has private not on government land. on government land stick it ministration has kept the permits and licenses and one-half. if i am president i will double them. >> governor from the central economic plan calls for a five trillion dollars tax cut on top of the extention
8:06pm
for borscht era tax cuts and additional military spending--torched of the bush era tax cuts. and how we have dealt with that without doubling those on middle-class americans. that is one central question. >> i do not have a five trillion dollar tax cut. and i have a view that we need to provide tax relief for the people in the middle class. but i do not want to reduce the share from high income people they are doing just fine. weather you are president or a i am but the people that are having difficulty. ... there will be more presidential debates. this will be a town hall format for the next one and for members of the audience. and there is one for the vice-presidential candidates. >>pam: kron 4 team coverage continues. and the watching

8:08pm
think the president is achieving victory, hands down. >> i think that every time there is a plan... the ideas are not bad ideas. >> in san francisco, reggie kumar, kron 4. >> this the one party was also near bay area republicans. terisa estaci o.. from the supporters listened to the first presidential debate. for the most part everybody said that they believe that medtronic did an excellent job. >> i think that he has done a fantastic job
